2 Funny: Raging Rudolph
With just 4 more days ’til Christmas, it’s time for another Xmas themed 2 Funny. This one comes from FOX’s MAD TV, an early stop-motion spoof depicting a twisted meshing of Rankin-Bass’ holiday classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and mobster flicks. This is “Raging Rudolph”.
MAD TV would go on to make 2 additional Rudolph parodies: “The Reinfather” and “A Pack of Gifts Now”, but neither of them were as funny nor did they hit all right marks like this one did. “Raging Rudolph” got there first, and did it best.
